Modern Music Director
Nick Brunner grew up in rural Illinois with his sister, parents and a vast expanse of corn. He discovered NPR in college when he was hired to work at WGLT-FM in Normal, Illinois (the real name of a real town). That’s where he came to appreciate the colors public radio painted amid a drab and predictable broadcast landscape.
Nick's delusions of sophistication often don't match his modest lifestyle and as a result, he spends time trying to find just the right wine to accompany Tuna Helper ... a Shiraz works well.
